Vintage Gwen Chapel-Hen and Chicks Revelation

My Hen and Chicks to date.

It's been a year since my mom gave me this pot of hen and chicks.  She has a bucket full and thought she'd share them with us girls.  She doesn't do anything to them, they thrive basically on their own. So this pot has sat on my porch for the last year, every now and then I'd put some water on it.  Well, it can get very hot in Oklahoma as well as snow a lot!  So it's no wonder that they dried up! I mean they were brittle, dry, nothing but dust if you were to crumble one up!  The neighbor's little boy even yanked some out a couple months ago and I thought, 'oh well, they are dead anyway.'
But wait...
There is some green!!  How excited am I that there's life in that pot!
And even a revelation!!
Is it better to be brand new or be brand new from dust, from death basically?
It's just like God to make life out of death.
Genesis 2:7 "Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of Life and the man became a living being."
Why did God form Adam from dust? You know He had the power to say "Adam. Be." just like He spoke everything else into existance.  
I think it's so that we can be reminded that even when our life, our situation looks like dust, death, that there's no hope, God will take our dust and breathe Life into it making us new! Making us whole and alive!
I'm so thankful I found that revelation amongst my hen and chicks!  God's good to me!

Have a blessed weekend!
